Spurs only lost to Barcelona on penalties on the US tour

French winger Georges-Kevin N'Koudou gave Tottenham a 1-0 win over AC Milan in their final US tour game.

The 23-year-old finished a driving run by firing a shot past Gianluigi Donnarumma in the 47th minute, for his second goal of pre-season.

It was Spurs' second win in three games, having beaten Roma and lost to Barcelona on penalties on the tour.

They face Girona in a friendly on Saturday, before their Premier League opener at Newcastle on 11 August.

Spurs started six academy players in Minneapolis - Luke Amos, TJ Eyoma, Anthony Georgiou, George Marsh, Oliver Skipp and Kyle Walker-Peters.

Christian Eriksen and Son Heung-min both came on for the final half-hour.

While Spurs had more possession in front of 31,000 at US Bank Stadium, their Serie A opponents had three times as many shots.

Patrick Cutrone went closest for the Rossoneri, with Michel Vorm palming away the Italian's point-blank header. Jose Mauri sliced a shot wide in injury time.

Meanwhile, Son will miss South Korea's games against the Philippines and Kyrgyzstan in January, as well as an international friendly in November.

Spurs and South Korea have agreed a compromise which will see Son playing at the Asian Games, which run from 18 August to 2 September.
